The drawing will be conducted on Sept 18th at the Tippman World Challenge, an annual world championship paintball event at Hell Survivors Paintball field in Pinckney, with the assistance of ExoticSportz, a GNI Motorsports team sponsor.
“ We are very excited about this opportunity to help the Make A Wish Foundation. I cannot think of an organization I can relate to more easily. Helping kids enjoy themselves at the most difficult times of their young lives is heart warming. I hope we can raise a lot of money for them and also raise awareness of the foundation’s great ideals at the same time we are enjoying our exciting sport.” said John Cirisan, driver of the GNI Motorsports #595 car.
